2 Gender of NounsUnlike nouns in English, every French noun has a gender, either masculine or feminine. You will need to remember the gender of each French noun that you learn.La Tour Eiffel
3 Definite Articles – pg 84To refer to a specific person, place or thing, you use a definite article. The definite articles in French are listed below.They ALL mean “the”.Le – comes before a masculine word beginning with a consonant sound.La – before a feminine word w/ consonant sound.L’ – used instead of the le or la before a word that begins with a vowel sound.Les – the plural form of le, la and l’.
4 Pronunciation of Definite Articles Le [luh] - rhymes with “je”La [lah]Les [lay] – rhymes with day, pay, ray, say!In spoken French, the sound of “les” is often the only indication that the noun is plural. Always be careful to distinguish between the different sounds.
5 Indefinite Articles “Un” and “une” are indefinite articles. They mean “a” or “an” (or “one” when using as a number!)“Des” – the plural form – means “some”The great thing about articles in French is that they usually indicate the gender of the noun.Je voudrais une salade et un jus d’orange.Salade is feminine; jus is masculine.

10 Je voudrais….. Je voudrais [voo dray] = I would like This is the POLITE way of saying “I want”.When ordering food or drink, you would use “un” or “une” (or another number) prior to the noun (in most cases.)Ex. Je voudrais un steak-frites et une limonade, s’il vous plâit .= I would like a steak and fries and a lemon-lime soda please.
11 Donnez-moi…. Donnez-moi = Give me When ordering you speak formally to your “serveur”, hence the –ez (vous) ending to the verb donner, which means “to give”Ex. Donnez-moi un jus d’orange s’il vous plâit.= Give me an orange juice please.
